Pajammy Jam of the Day | Lucinda Williams – I Don’t Know How You’re Livin’

Lucinda Williams has always been good at telling the truth.  Songs like “Those Three Days” and “Essence” reveal a woman who knows what she wants and also a person who isn’t afraid to ask questions. Williams, in my opinion, is a confronting songwriter – one of the best alive, male or female.

So when I hear a song like today’s PJOTD, it affects me deeply. “I Don’t Know How You’re Livin’” is exactly five minutes in length, but it reveals a lifetime of struggle, a journey that is still ongoing through good and bad. It’s a song about broken plans, unconditional love – it’s about rising to the challenge when you’re least prepared to do so. Really, it’s just a song about life.

Williams’ new album, Blessed, is set for release on March 1st.
